Graham Kavanagh: 'I thought it was a great performance.'

Carlisle United are now just one point above relegation after a nil-nil draw at home against Stevenage.

Despite a number of chances at goal the home team couldn't find the net and the game ended in a draw.

Stevenage are just a point and a place behind 20th-placed Carlisle in the table.

"I thought it was a great performance, I thought we had everything bar the goal.

"We were the more energetic team, we were the team that was always on the front foot, we took the game to the opposition.

"We created loads of chances but we just couldn't put the ball in the net."
